New Reception Class Sept 2022

Dear Parents/Carers

Further to your acceptance of a place for your child in our Reception Classes for September 2022, we would like to welcome you and your family to St James' Primary School. We are enormously proud of our school and look forward to meeting you and your child very soon.

Our Reception meeting will take place on Monday 18th July 2022 at 2.30pm in St James' School Hall. 

We understand that starting Reception is a huge milestone for children and parents, and we aim to make the transition as smooth as possible in September.   To achieve this, we offer a gradual intake programme, which has been outlined in your pack of information that was sent to you recently. Our transition programme has been very well thought through and successful in past years. Our aim is for all children to settle in well, embrace their new environment and to feel happy and secure at school.

We understand that all children are different and have different needs. We will look at each child’s transition on an individual basis and work in partnership with you to ensure that your child is settled and happy at school.

I have attached some information below of things you can do with your child in the lead up to getting your child ready for September, as well as dates and online links to help you get ready for September -we hope you find this useful. Should you need anything before this please do not hesitate in contacting the school and speaking to our office staff.
